This book presents the latest developments in optimization and optimal control models; exact, approximate and hybrid methods; and their applications in lean and green supply chains. It examines supply chain network design and modeling, closed loop supply chains, and lean, green, resilient and agile or responsive networks, and also discusses corporate social responsibility and occupational health and safety. It particularly focuses on supply chain management under uncertainty - employing stochastic or nonlinear modeling, simulation based studies and optimization - multi-criteria decision-making and applications of fuzzy set theory, and covers various aspects of supply chain management such as risk management, supplier selection or the design of automated warehouses. Lastly, using experimental applications and practical case studies, it shows the impact of lean and green applications on vehicle/fleet management and operations management.

Sandra Huber is a member of the Logistics-Management Department at the Helmut-Schmidt-University, University of the Federal Armed Forces in Hamburg, Germany since 2013. Prior to this position, she received her M.Sc. of Science at the Helmut-Schmidt-University. In 2016 she was awarded with her PhD degree with a thesis on Interactive Multiobjective Optimization in Supply Chain Management - Local search strategies for Rich Vehicle Routing Problems. Her research area is in decision support and supply chain management. She is particularly interested in multi-objective combinatorial optimization, interactive approaches, heuristics for Vehicle Routing Problems and the simulation of preference information. She visited the research institute CIRRELT in Montréal, Canada as well as the Université Bretagne Sud.
